Post Tensioning

Post Tensioned concrete looks and acts just like any other reinforced concrete.

Post Tensioning is simply a way to reinforce concrete in a more active way than just placing reinforcing steel.

Post Tensioning, which is a form of pre-stressing, has several advantages over standard reinforcing steel (rebars):

  • It reduces or eliminates shrinkage cracking
  • Cracks that do form are held tightly together
  • It allows slabs and other structural members to be thinner
  • It allows us to build slabs on expansive or soft soils
  • It lets us design longer spans in elevated members, like floors or beams
